John Everitt

John Everitt qualified as an Architect in 2000 from the Welsh School of Architecture and has worked in private practice since 1996 when not in full time education. He has a broad experience covering many sectors of development but specialising in residential development.

Previously a partner with a multidisciplinary practice in Cheltenham, John has worked closely with a number of Housing Associations over the last five years in particular helping them to assess the impact and implement the design changes that they need to make to accommodate the increasing environmental performance of the units they are developing.

John has a particular interest in sustainable design not only for new build schemes but also for the application of sustainable techniques to improve the performance of existing residential units.

John is jointly responsible for the design studio and for coordinating and overseeing the accreditation of the practice under ISO 9001, 14001 to ensure the quality and efficiency of the service.
